Re: New desktop computer -> These components good (together)? Some advice needed

I am reminded of John Peel's comment that Emerson Lake and Palmer's performance at the Isle of White Festival was a "waste of talent and electricity".

I just re-read what I wrote and I want to add that I think that John Peel was wrong. Just in case anyone is offended by the reference.

It was discussed a few months ago on the Reaper forum

and received a mixed reception.

Interesting thread. Thank you.

Studio One since 5.4, as mentioned HERE. ;)

Thanks. It isn't quite what I had in mind, but it does look as if it might help.

Re: New desktop computer -> These components good (together)? Some advice needed

Why doesn't my DAW (Reaper) do this automatically? Are there other DAWs that do this? Well they're not psychic (yet) so they don't know what you want to work on next. However, if you've been following Reaper's development recently, you'll see that they have been working on ways of stopping plug-ins...

Re: New desktop computer -> These components good (together)? Some advice needed

Yes, it's quite sobering how much electricity we are burning in pursuit of our hobby, even with a modern CPU that throttles back when it is not busy. I am reminded of John Peel's comment that Emerson Lake and Palmer's performance at the Isle of White Festival was a "waste of talent and electric...

Re: Wifi Routers

While wired connections are always going to be better, the latest 802.11 coding schemes are way better than the stuff we were using just a few years ago. My latest router is pretty damn fast, I can stream 4K video anywhere in the apartment and be doing a cloud backup at the same time. I can’t think...

Re: Do I need a headphone amp for this setup?

This review of the similar (I think) Sennheiser HD650 suggests adding roughly 7dB in total of bass boost, when they are said to sound "superb" (from the point of view of an audiophile, which may not improve them for mixing purposes). https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threa...

Yes, that satisfies my curiosity. Thank you.

Re: Battery power for ‘street’ amp.

Yes, it's also a moot point because in an integrated unit we don't know how efficient the loudspeakers are, and the evidence is that the whole product is extremely fiit for purpose. I was just curious, that's all.

Re: Battery power for ‘street’ amp.

I did wonder about that. Since 1974 there has been a strict rule in the USA on how to define output power for consumer amplifiers, but I'm guessing that this rule may not apply to pro audio equipment?

Re: Battery power for ‘street’ amp.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the rated output current of the supplied power supply (it should be printed on it)? The reason that I ask, is that the Boss website quotes a current draw of 390mA. This is not in any way consistent with a claimed output power of 2x5 watts (more like 2x2.5 watts a...
